It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Lynn McAuley continues as our challenge hostess for the month.
For our challenge this week Lyn has asked us to Create a card starring Santa! This is our last challenge for 2014 as we are all taking a break, but we will be back ready to stamp up a storm at the beginning of January 2015.
For my card this week, I have used Jane’s Doodles Peace Santa Digital Stamp, I found this stamp online earlier in the year and just had to purchase it and have finally had the time to play with it .
For the background of my card I have been playing with the new Transparent Tape from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I just love this new tape, it comes in various widths include 3mm; 6mm; 10mm; 64mm and 152mm rolls. For this card I have used the 3mm; 6mm and 10mm tapes and adhered them to my card diagonally in an interesting pattern. I then removed the protective backing from every third piece of tape and applied Soft Green Silk Microfine Glitter. I then removed the protective backing to the next lot of tape and applied Forest Green Silk Microfine Glitter and finally removed the remaining protective backing and applied True Red Silk Microfine Glitter.
I added more of the glittered paper I created on the front to the top and bottom of the card, bordering it with the pine border die.
Here is a side on view of my card.
